Women’s group riding and Skills Clinic
What is it
Taw Velo’s women’s group riding and skills clinic is a great opportunity for ladies with any level of cycling skills to build their confidence and skills for road riding either on their own or in groups.
The coaching will take place in a safe, traffic free, outdoor environment delivered by British Cycling trained and qualified coaches.
The sessions will be around 90 minutes and take place in Roundswell near Sainsburys, more information on location will be provided on enquiry. Road side parking is available close by.
What will be covered
The sessions will cover a range of riding skills and aptitudes. Starting with the basics of understanding your bike and how to check that it is safe. Starting and stopping, body position, gear selection, cornering and group riding skills.
The sessions are not about conditioning or training they will be entirely skills based.
The sessions assume that you can ride a bike
Who’s the Coach
Club Chair and level 2 BC coach, Adrian also races in Triathlon and Cyclocross and coaches every Saterday for the clubs youth section. Adrian rides regularly on and off road.
What do I need

You will need appropriate clothing and PPE.
Helmet - this is compulsory
Clothing that is not baggy particually around the ankles
Closed toe shoes (no sandals or flip flops)
Appropriate clothing for the weather. The sessions will go ahead whatever the weather is doing, cycling is after all an outdoor sport so dress appropriately, there will be somewhere to put clothes if you have too many. The sessions are skills based not about riding hard remember its a lot easier to cool down a warm rider than warm up a cold one.
Gloves, not compulsory but advised.
What will it cost
The sessions are free for club members (Membership costs £20 per year)
For non club members sessions will cost £10 for all three, this is an upfront cost required to cover expenses.
